I didn't say we had to or should return to agrarian. I just said that IF
we had less government and IF that government didn't pay for research
and IF nobody else paid for research either and we didn't have these
computers, I would still prefer it over government taking my money for
other people. I don't believe that would even have been the case, nor
that reducing government would result in less innovation, but if it
does, then I'm happy to be more free with slower innovation.
